The government shutdown has had numerous effects on people's daily lives. But on Wednesday, one man decided to stand up to the federal government.
Armed with a lawn mower and a South Carolina state flag, he got out there and is making sure the damn lawn is mowed.
Thank you for your service in these troubling times, Lawn Mower Guy.
Chris was sadly asked to stop mowing by Park Police, but he definitely made an impression. Representative Mark Sanford saw the lone patriotic mower and was impressed.
"Chris embodies what it means to be not just a South Carolinian, but an American," added Sanford. "He saw a job that wasn't getting done and decided to take care of it."
Here's a video of Chris being interviewed by the office of Congressman Darrell Issa.
